us from washington, democratic strategist marge mcclinton in for juan williams and mary katherine ham. the pugh number, 49-45 surprised me, mary katherine. same with you? >> i was a little surprised at how far it moved. i'm not surprised it's moving in mitt romney's favor. i mean, this was 70 million people watching and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in those 70 million people thinking they were going to be a colts-packers fight, but they were surprised. i think the amount of that surprise worked in romney's favor. i will point out that the pugh survey is probably a little bit more republican than the electorate will end up being, which is something we've had a lot of discussions about. but i do think some of these number should be frightening to them of we've got 49-41 he leads on how to deal with job creation. >> bill: but you know what's interesting about this marj
, mary katherine. you can stretch the truth. you can bend the facts but you're a liar? >> well, i think it might have been an upgrade for obama to look like a blind squirrel according to even some of his liberal critics the other night. he was a blind squirrel with altitude sickness according to gore. i think what this is, he didn't win on substance. didn't win on style. just one of three debates. i think he will certainly get better in the next two. there was a lot of pretty ugly, embarrassing excuse making right after the event including altitude sickness one from gore is my personal favorite. maybe they decided it will be more dignified to call him a liar. this is a strategy. happened after paul ryan's speech. if you can't call them dumb, call them a liar. turning what are basically political disagreements call them a liar. bill: after ryan's speech in tampa? >> that was the immediate response from them. basic strategy and take basic political disagreements and paint them as fabrications. bill: juan, can you defend this? >> agree with mary katherine in terms of style. president didn'
, just as mary katherine was saying you see increased numbers per of americans saying they really trust mitt romney on the economy and, a smaller margin that used to be a plus nine for obama in terms of empathy he understands ordinary people like me that number is shrinking now to plus five but largely among white men. again that could be determinative. bill: watch that story, juan. i mean that's really starting to show itself. >> yeah. bill: in a lot of these pollings, that demographic. i want to move quickly if i could, mary katherine, to this ad apparently a lot of folks are going to see real soon. this is pro-obama actress talking about why she voted for obama in 2008. here's part of it. >> first time shouldn't be with just anybody. >> you want to do it with a great guy. should be with a guy with beautiful, someone that really cares about and understands women. bill: goes on from there. there is lot more inthere, frankly. runs about a minute. as a woman how do you react to that. >> it is a get-out-the-vote effort for young unmarried women. the gender gap frankly is closing for romne
. >> good morning. >> good morning. jamie: mary katherine, vice president biden said paul ryan needed to get his facts straight. but then he presented a scenario that seemed to contradict in every way the hearings and testimony we had regarding what the administration knew about security needs, security requests and also, who was behind the attack. film, not film. what are your thoughts? >> vice president biden talked about in the debate taking responsibility. i think stephanie cutter's comments from the campaign are the ultimate in evading responsibility, suggesting that this is only an issue because romney and ryan are talking about it. it is an issue because the american people have an inherent and natural interest, very keen interest in their national security and in whether americans are safe oversees. four people died. four americans died and people have to answer for it. the administration has been misleading on this from day one. eli lake at "newsweek", who has been all over this story, i suggest you read him, from first day said look, they had, within 24 hours information that this
brought you both on because you have differing views of the debate last night. mary katherine you think essentially it was a draw. >> i think it was more contentious because in the first debate only one side was fightinging a many even on the left have said. obama would come to the table with more this time, be more aggressive. i think romney relies less on likeability than obama does. there is more risk for him coming after somebody hard that way. i think mostly a tie. see in post-debate polling, a slight win for obama on the top line but when you look a little bit lower on issues like the economy and both cnn and "cbs poll" a double-digit lead for romney how he handled that and the debt. those are really important issues. i'm not sure that a narrow second debate win overcomes those. jon: simon, you wrote that you don't think mitt romney showed himself to be a strong leader last night. you think he hurt himself with this performance? >> yeah. i think on balance this was a very important night for barack obama. he clearly won in every snap poll. he made his case on the economy and forei
. it is about out comes. we have five days to see if he does a good job. jon: does the public, mary katherine, reach out, wrap the president in the warm embrace of a job well-done, nation coming together in time of crisis? >> i think this is a concern for both campaigns because any human being, and i do include politicians and those of us pay attention to politics 20 hours a day, narrowly in that category of human beings the main concern is the folks on the ground who are hurt and make sure they get served and back on their feet as soon as possible in these communities. i think that is the number one concern. as part of that concern it is necessary to tamp down i think some of the partisan tone which has been, soft pedaled in the past couple days in romney campaign. president obama back in washington dealing with sandy response. there are advantages to incumbency. i can go to the red cross in new jersey and be seen how well he is in charge of situation. i'm not sure in five days you find out whether they responded well or not but there has been a fairly decent record in the tornadoes of 2011,
anniversary. [applause] >> october 3rd. >> thank you. megyn: mary katherine ham is editor at large of "hot air.com and a fox news contributor. sally cohen is also a fox news contributor. there is no disparity there at all is there mary kathrine? >> i don't think it's that surprising that a republican would go into more of an ultimate fighting championship on the view and the president would get kid gloves. i think they missed an opportunity. they had the sitting president with them in the wake of a terrorist attack on the 9/11 anniversary that killed four americans and they didn't grill him very hard on that. ann romney got quite the grilling. i think she was ready for that and knew that was the case. she came off poised. waop pea goldberg came out with her with an ignorant ill informed assertion about mormonism, and she was able to explain about mormon's service in the military and 18,000 of them serving. megyn: we'll play that in a moment. they tk ask president obama about libya. joe behar asked if it was terrorism. he made news designing to say it was terrorism. did you watch the segment? b
. juan williams is fox news political analyst. he is out in denver. good to see you both. mary katherine, the president, however has a commanding lead among women. why is that? what is he going to do about it? what is romney going to do about it and is romney going to try to address that tonight? >> well i think in 2010 there was a swing towards republicans among independents and among women. the republicans actually won them in 2010. i think that freaks democrats out rightly and they went on the rampage on this messaging, you heard the war on women theme all summer long which was mostly fabricated and, i think it had some success. they have been worried about, mitt romney doesn't have to win women. what he has to do is peel off some of obama's voters. they were rightly trying to shore that up. i think that is what he is up against. but i think showing them on the debate stage, look, i'm a guy who is confident, who is smart, who can discuss the eschews. i think you can make some progress with those undecided women. gregg: juan, want to show you a couple of swing state polls. these are im
political analyst and mary katherine ham editor at largat large. is he right? has he failed in that regard. >> i don't think it's been satisfactory in my mind as a democratic voter. in charlotte he did layout plans,er says specifically that he wants to boost the manufacturing sector. he said he wants to boost import -- exports i should say. so, manufacturing, exports. he wanted to do more in terms of reducing energy dependence, building on the record he has of cutting oil imports to the united states and he says he wanted to do lots with education, in specific building the number of teachers in the country and improving the skills of our young people so they can compete in the global economy. that was the a skwrepbd toda the agenda he set out for his second term. martha: very tough for people to open new manufacturing plants in this country, and a lot of incentive for them to do just that overseas. they have to deal with unions and a lot of issues with regard to getting the capital just to build the factories, mary kathrine. who is doing a better job in defining what that would take? >> i
